Lol!! Awwww. That was going to be my post! Well at least now I don't have to get a headache writing it myself.


Excellent Rant, Zazz!

It's not bigotry to be put off by walls of text; even those who tend toward semicolons realize that long, pedantic sentences put people off, regardless of the point being made.

You're right. Simply separating the blathering with an ordinary paragraph lulls some into reading where they would not otherwise have taken the time.

Do I have anything to say? Yes, but probably not here. Bust your prose up into small visual bites. Your mummy will thank you, even if she doesn't surf on ATS.

The rodeo has not yet begun.

Cat wrangling is not for sissies.

No brother it's not.

I know you do it whilst dancing and singing Taylor Swifts Shake It Up. Tough stuff of Legend.

My peeve is about the same...except mine's the sentences without caps, and ends without periods... to signify they ARE a new sentence, and this one's ending!

The poster just starts talkin", (typing-texting)...and doesn't stop until they are through....Umpteen thoughts without break!


It becomes 20 thoughts in 90 lines (exaggerate here)...and 3,000 words!

Capitols and periods are our friends!! (end rant in agreement)

For this one being your very first rant thread, this is a very well written one for someone who has never ranted on here before. I must say that this is another rant that I can agree with with no arguments abound. It really irritates me when I come across a thread that is nothing but that. A wall of text that is so hard to look at that it makes me squirm from the pain of just looking at it. Not only are they a big time pain to make a very small attempt to read. It is also a pain to try to comprehend what is being said and to formulate a response to it in general. Yet, these are the same threads where some wonder why they aren't getting the discussion that they want or would like to take part in. Well, if your thread had a little something called proper punctuation. Then maybe, just maybe, your threads will do a whole lot better. That is all I have left to say on this pressing matter............

*ducks*
Sheesh......... ya didn't really need to throw the cat toward my HEAD!!!!! However I digress............

I still luv ya Zazz

.1. Just turn smooth scrolling option on and click the mouse middle
.2.. button to keep the text slowly disappearing on the top. If it still
.3.... hurts your eyes press ctrl and scroll up to make text larger.
.4...... Shouldn't they make a vid from each thread so you don't
.5.... have to read at all? We aren't illustrating bibles here.
.6.. Of course we are overloaded with data on a site full
.7. of narcistic grafomen who read a bit to write a lot

.Btw if you put some space on the start of the line the editor will align it anyway

Just as bad as walls...






Is when people do this.






I don't understand why you have to make every sentence look like some prophetic quote.


Stop doing it.






You are creating a wall of nothing let alone a wall of text. People can decipher your post just fine.



No need to space out everything.









Thank you


I agree!

Or.............. how about when people feel the need ......... to break up every few words......... with a bunch .......... of periods in between...............

I........ automatically picture......... William Shatner....... reading....... out loud........... what they typed.

Just reiterating my feelings in my OP.

That's all.

OH, I see. It's a brevity contest.

Solely for the purpose of torturing us verbosians. I see how you are.

Consider yourself lucky you hit return twice between those 2 sentences of yours.

In my student days, I was infamous for paragraph-long sentences and page-long paragraphs.
On ATS, I learned to adjust to the needs of screen-readers, and I've evolved a style which breaks up the text as much as you could wish.
Yet, ironically, someone on one of my threads a while back was complaining about that very thing, the broken-up paragraphs. I think he was a traditionalist who preferred the long ones.

An interesting segue (probably only to me)..... recently lizard spit has been synthesized into a treatment for diabetes.

Now what do you suppose made "them" look there, of all places?

"Say, Bob, have we tried lizard spit, yet?"
"w'hell no, Tyberius..... d'you think........ Imeancoulditpossiblybe........."
"Worth a try, doncha think?"
